A big thank you to Revell for providing this book in exchange for an honest review.
I want to thank my friend, Starr, for being our guest reviewer. Occasionally, she helps me out by reviewing a book of two for me.
Here are her thoughts on the book:
If you like historical fiction then you will love A Light in the Wilderness. The main character Letitia gets her papers that state she is no longer a slave. They are the only proof that she has, and with some people even the papers did no good. She wants nothing more than to make a new life for herself in a place where others will treat her like a person. She meets an Irish man who marries her “as legally as they possibly could”. They travel west and make many new friends and enemies along the way. She hides her papers in a “safe” place for the journey, but ….okay, I can’t say anything else or it will be a spoiler. You will just have to read the book and find out for yourself all of the adventures, mishaps, and triumphs that they had.
